Whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (WB-MRI) has been available for some time, but only recently it has become a valuable method for total body screening from head to toes. WB-MRI is increasingly being used in the diagnostics of systemic musculoskeletal disorders, as well as a variety of oncological e non-oncological diseases; it is able to detect subtle lesions and pathologic changes in normal structures, reducing image interpretation time. We are presenting a case where WB- MRI imaging allowed to incidentally detect a mediastinal Hodgkin lymphoma in a professional soccer player referred to our observation after a contact trauma occurred during a soccer match.


KEY WORDS: Whole body imaging - Mediastinal incidentaloma - Hodgkin disease
